Random Polkura


Founded by friends Sven Bruchfield & Gonzalo Munoz in 2002 after they had both travelled widely around Europe studying winemaking, intending to establish their property. A glass of Syrah with some lamb in a café in Narbonne proved to be the inspiration for Polkura, recognised now as one of the pre-eminent producers of the variety in Chile.

In addition to Syrah a number of other varieties were planted in 2002. These are often used to supply other wineries but by 2015 Sven and Gonzalo realised that their quality was to high to sell entirely so they started to make an annually changing blend of the best performing parcels. The 2017 is 45% Syrah, 30% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Grenache, 2% Tempranillo and 2% Petit Verdot – but not vintage is ever the same, hence the name. Just 1,400 cases produced, no stabilisation, fining or filtration. Lots of red fruits and spicy notes of anise on the nose.
